That means that the newsletter goes out today! This issue is a little sneak peek of what I've been doing this summer when I'm not beading. If you haven't signed up, be sure and do so to the right. (Subscribers will also be getting a HUGE deal, so....)
Also, kind of a sad announcement:
No Margie and Me this month.
I told you a couple of weeks ago that I've been playing around with metal, and I really want to spend some time focusing on doing just that. I've ordered this:
and these (in glass) to practice with.
What do I plan to do with them?
Glad you asked! I'll probably start with something like THIS, and then move on to something definitely less complicated, ya' know like THIS. Of course afterwards, I'll need something to keep me busy when I've got so much free time, which means I'll probably create something like THIS.
In all seriousness, I'm finding myself back at the place I was a few years ago, asking myself, do I have a voice to add to the conversation?
Can I create and design something in metal that is entirely me whether it includes tiny seed beads or not?
I'll never know until I try and I'm very eager to try. I've got a shipment coming in from Fire Mountain Gems today and I'm looking forward to getting set up and just trying.
We did enamels in my class yesterday and I fell in love with the addition of color on metal, and I really want to see where it takes me.
Thank you for your support over the past couple of months, you have helped to make this journey possible.
I hope you enjoy your Wednesday!
